“Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.” *

I didn’t think I cared who won the Super Bowl – heck, until this afternoon I couldn’t have even told you which teams were playing – but right after I had commented to H how boring I find football, the Patriots scored on an incredible passing play that kept me and H glued to the TV after all. And then….the comeback of the Giants – how exciting! So maybe I get it a little bit after all.

It could have been the basement-cleaning that took place today, or the walking around Bed Bath & Beyond looking for curtain hardware with my friend E yesterday – or I suppose it could have been “the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat” that caused my water to break just as what we thought was the Patriots’ winning touchdown was scored.

If it had been the Stanley Cup finals, though? I wouldn’t have even told H until the game was over.

I’ll keep you posted.

God Bless! Can't wait! Please don't name the baby Plaxico, I'm reserving that one for myself!

Be well, be strong, you are in my thoughts. By the time I am cuddling the twins in the morning, I hope that you are holding your own in your arms.

blackbird said...

I'll be thinking of you ALL DAY.
No, really.
I'll be focused on you all day - because I'm crazy like that.

May it be swift and easy!

Oh baby!! How exciting! You can do it--you've done it before!

jenny said...

Hurray! Wishing you a safe and speedy delivery.

Plaxico? :) Can you even imagine?

Although, here in New England there is an overabundance of little boys (& dogs for that matter) named Brady.

Liz said...

Yay! Eagerly awaiting more news!

Velma said...

Every time I see "Plaxico," I think about a plexiglass factory or something. Maybe you'd consider "Acme" instead?

Good vibes being sent west from me to you - hope it is fast and easy!

I hope it's a girl. Or a boy.

catsteevens said...

Hahahahaha....I'm laughing at all the Plaxico comments. HA!

Good vibes, smooth delivery wishes to you.

Katya said...

Many hugs for the whole "BBabe" family,
